Smelling the fresh meadow in the morning dew, marvelling at the mountain panorama of the expansive surrounding countryside and listening to the silence of nature – does that sound like a conference or meeting? You bet it does! In our newsletter series “Meetings in the Green”, we would like to introduce you to dreamlike locations for groups, meetings, conferences and seminars, which will definitely attract the attention of your customers!
Our selection of hotels has been made carefully, always with the aim of harmoniously embedding them in nature while conserving resources as much as possible. In addition to the exclusivity and uniqueness of the location, the focus is also on the highest level of comfort, culinary delights and optimal event conditions. A suitable social programme with excursions and team-building activities can be put together individually and serves as the perfect complement to a group trip.
The demand for environmental friendly and sustainable events is increasing and many of the conference hotels are now certified, socially committed and use regional resources.
Come along on the journey to new inspirations in the 1st part of our “Meetings in the Green”series and get a whiff of Austrian mountain air.
